Face huggers man..

As much as I love the little buggers, parasites are a liiittle bit too much of a health drainer. My idea is to make it that they die off on their own after a while, but not before they eat off a good chunk of your health. If you're low on health, make it so they die off when you reach like 1 point of health. If a Medic is nearby, he can heal off your health that got eaten, but he shouldn't be NEEDED to kill the parasites.

I also think something like the Flamethrower should be able to kill them while on top of a team mate. Or maybe there should be a new off hand item that kills a latched on parasite instantly on an team mate, but can only be used a limited number of times (3). Not something like the shock armor, but something to be used on a team member. But I do like watching my team mates run around with the things on their heads and watch them explode into a whole bunch more face huggers.

But this is an overall excellent game, thanks Valve.

Have you tried hugging them back? Just give them a little affection and they'll go away.

Nah, for once a game that does stuff like this. Games get too soft sometimes. Parasites kill well and if you die... You have to sit and watch. Good stuff Maybe you'll fear for your life a bit more and make it more intense. Work on that aim!

Protip - Use fire on the infected team mate => Problem solved.
